When a restaurant offers more than 100 kinds of tequila, its menu can be somewhat beside the point. Like, really, who cares? Blue Agave, however, tries hard to serve highly authentic Mexican food and generally succeeds. Simpler dishes like burritos de carne asada, pork carnitas, and quesadillas are what the kitchen does best; sometimes the more exotic dishes get a little muddled, like maybe the cooks have unfettered access to the tequila. Surprisingly, desserts are terrific. Mexican cuisine isn't renowned for its sweet endings, but Blue Agave's house-made tres leches cake and flan of the day are outstanding.
"This Euro-style neighborhood cafe serves the business and court crowd by day, and is a full-blown restaurant at night. Featuring seafood, paninis, vegetarian and sweets.

Caribbean Kitchen is not fast. It is not fancy. It does, however, turn out some of the most consistently kick-ass Jamaican food in Baltimore. The kitchen will kindly tone down the jerk chicken for the timid, but we love Caribbean Kitchen's incendiary seasonings and always ask for more, more, more. Curry goat is marvelous--rich, intensely flavored meat sliding off the bone in a glorious golden spicy sauce. The flavored rice and peas plus the buttery cabbage-rich mixed vegetables that come with every combo help put out the fire, but it is even better to add a side order of soft, sweet fried plantains and a genuine D&G ginger beer.
"R&B Hip-Hop Soul artist from Washington, DC by way of West Philly that delivers a high energy performance pulling from musical influences like Micheal Jackson, Prince, Jay -Z, and Ne-Yo just to name a few, with an inter-changeable set to fit any venue complete with a spoken word artist, dancers , Dj and a live band, his sound is grown and sexy with a teen sensibility."
If any one thing brought the members of ...soihadto... together, it's the belief that music isn't simply meant to be listened to, it's to be experienced. Rahn, Duff, Honus and Yungwirth fuel their performances with a love for the pure, immersive sound of performing live. The ...soihadto... story began in 2006 in Baltimore, Maryland. By combining a variety of influences from indie to punk to hardcore to soul-funk and an incomparable melodic approach, the sound of ...soihadto... is as varied and unique as their rapidly growing fan-base. The concept for the bands debut EP was simple: they wanted it to be less of a traditional album, and more of a personal invitation to feel and experience a live performance. The EP is a spontaneous, yet highly kinetic performance, and is the closest you can get to being on stage with the band. The band recorded their upcoming album at the Magpie Cage Studio with producer/engineer J. Robbins. While ...soihadto... have just started their journey, the combination of their unique musical stylings and the furious energy of their live performances have made them a rising band to watch.
"comprised of four classical guitarists, the 1 East Guitar Quartet is a chamber ensemble that works closely with today's best composers (including a few Baltimore residents) to promote and perform new music. 1EastGQ also explores the world of Renaissance and Medieval music to help bring this music back to life, creating and performing exciting new arrangements."

"UP AND COMING INDIE LABEL WITH MUSIC INFLUENCED BY ALL GENRES."
8 ohms are an Annapolis Based 8 piece horn heavy funk, soul, reggae band. Their sound, while reminiscent of James Brown, Bob Marley and early 70's rare groove, still provides a unique and eclectic perspective in modern music.
"9MR is a band that slashes through the mold of normality. When one of the 6 members has a song or a riff idea, it goes through the 9MR filter; it gets tweeked, it gets shredded, it gets edgier or louder, sometimes it gets chopped completely, but it will always jump out the box as a killer groove with a unanimous stamp of approval.
The sound created by 9MR comes from a number of influences. They are constantly striving to find that delicate blend of reggae and rock where the music just floats on it’s own. The sound of 9MR has been compared to Sublime and Reel Big Fish with drops of Marley and John Browns Body, and the whimsy of Cake and Bare Naked Ladies.
9 Mile Roots hails from the Baltimore area and is always up for playing the dock bars, the festivals, the dive bars, and even the private party."
Mostly female power-pop formed in 1997... a "cross between the Beatles and the Pretenders with some unexpected twists and you're almost there."

In a project being produced by Reveley Records, A.R.S. is poised to hit the Hip Hop scene with songs like Sound Scan and Thug-N-Me. Their sound tries to give a new spin on the sometimes overdone rhetoric of Rap music today. The music of A.R.S. is funky with dance beats and a rhythm that sometimes seems familiar yet is different.
"The Set UP: Acoustic Guitar + Microphone.
Brief History: ashrf is a fusion of Middle Eastern & American cultures, merging Sudanese roots with his rock influence to craft an original and enjoyable sound. His music was labeled “Middle Eastern Alternative” by the Owings Mills Times.
He has performed since he was a young boy in Sudan, and began playing venues and events in the DC Tri-State area in 2003. He is always the one to call for original Songwriter Showcases, international festivals, and has been the featured artist at many musical events. Because of his simple set up, he is quick to begin on stage and easy on the ears.
His unique and captivating sound is always a crowd favorite. His many performances include the featured artist’s slot on the Fredrick County Public Access show called “Backstage Pass.” His cover of “Allergy” by ilyAIMY was played at a local college radio station in Tennessee. Poetic lyrics crafted into pentatonic scales provide the main ingredients for his music, and his falsetto is always the icing on his musical cake. All in all, he is an acoustic act not to be missed."
"Soulful guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Haunting melodies and thoughtful lyrics, delivered with a bold voice and artful guitar playing."
